Got the day off to pick up my peanut!!
Two weeks went so fast and I am sitting here in Manhattan waiting for her bus to pull up. I have friends who are so psyched to get their kids away to camp and I guess I understand part of that, and maybe it’s because of working so much and joint custody, but I was so sad to have her go and I am thrilled to have her coming back!! As I have mentioned before, she is not the easiest of kids by any means, but she makes me so happy that I cannot explain it, she didn’t grow in me and for the first 2 1/2 years we weren’t even sure that she wouldn’t go back to her birth mother, but from the moment I saw that little baby in the isolette with no where to go, I knew she was for us and we were for her. Everything we had gone through made sense.
Anyway, my kid will be back in minutes and I am thrilled. I have to work the next 2 days, 13 hours a day, but today is ours. I’ll let her pick what she wants for lunch. I am guessing she’ll want sushi. Then, we will do her laundry. Two weeks worth of muddy clothes will definitely hit the laundromat before coming in my house! Lol! She’ll be happy to have minecraft back, so I think she’ll be just fine while the washer/dryer is going:)
Just a wee bit excited:) I really hope she had fun. I hope this was a good experience for her. Sonja is not one to hide her emotions. I’ll know pretty quickly! Lol!
